CBS’ New Animated Holiday Greetings, Inspired By a Classic 1966 Spot, Will Warm Any Grinch’s Heart — Exclusive

  • Indiewire
Every few years, CBS dusts off a minute-long animated holiday greeting that first ran in 1966. Now, more than 50 years later, it’s unveiling several new animated shorts that were inspired by that original spot.

Renowned for its graphic art design, the vintage greeting was designed by illustrator/animator R.O. Blechman (The New Yorker, “The Soldier’s Tale,” “Sesame Street,” Alka-Seltzer ads) and produced by animator Willis Pyle (“Pinocchio,” “Bambi,” “Mr. Magoo”). Because it’s a minute long (the standard back then, but unheard of now, as commercials are stripped to as quick as six seconds), CBS doesn’t have the opportunity to run it often.

‘Bambi’s 75th Anniversary Blu-ray Is a Must-Own for Die-Hard Disney Fans

Way back in 1942, exactly 75 years ago this August 21st, Walt Disney Pictures released their fifth animated feature film, Bambi. Just the mention of that title probably conjures one specific memory for Disney fans who last watched this beloved classic years and years ago, a memory of a traumatic death that occurs roughly halfway through the film's 70-minute runtime. But there is so much more to the story of Bambi, both in the on-screen retelling of Felix Salten's 1923 novel and in the behind-the-scenes drama of the production that weathered labor strikes, technical …

31 Things Only Diehard Beauty and the Beast Fans Know

Image Source: Everett Collection Beauty and the Beast is one of Disney's most timeless classics, but there's a lot about the animated film that you might not have realized. For instance, do you know exactly what kind of animal the Beast was based on? Or his real name? The reboot is absolutely gorgeous and has a few interesting updates, but for now, let's revisit all of the interesting tidbits that make the 1991 film so great. Jackie Chan dubbed the voice of the Beast for Chinese-speaking countries. He provided vocals for both the Beast's speaking and singing parts! Chip originally had only one line. The producers liked 9-year-old actor Bradley Pierce's voice so much that they asked to expand the role. He also wasn't supposed to be a teacup. Early drawings of the character saw him as a music box who could only communicate by his chiming musical notes. Belle's

Film Review: ‘Beauty and the Beast’

Film Review: ‘Beauty and the Beast’
You could say that the notion of turning beloved stories and characters into brands was invented by Walt Disney. He built his empire on the image of Mickey Mouse (who made his debut in 1928), but Disney really patented the brand concept in 1955, with the launch of Disneyland, where kids could see old familiar characters — Mickey! Snow White! — in a completely different context, which made them new. Twenty-three years ago, the Broadway version of “Beauty and the Beast” (followed three years later by the Broadway version of “The Lion King”) introduced a different form of re-branding: the stage-musical-based-on-an-animated-feature. Now the studio is introducing a cinematic cousin to that form with the deluxe new movie version of “Beauty and the Beast,” a $160 million live-action re-imagining of the 1991 Disney animated classic. It’s a lovingly crafted movie, and in many ways a good one, but before that it’s an enraptured piece of old-is-new nostalgia.

If one is looking to experience a dose of astonishing beauty, now in theaters in the Oscar-nominated animation The Red Turtle.

Featuring classics from Kubrick, Cimino, Kurosawa, and more, on the animation side, he makes sure to recognize a Miyazaki masterwork, along with a seminal Disney film.

“Just before the team arrived, Studio Ghibli called me and said, ‘We’ve been thinking about the list of words that are supposed to be spoken in the film and we think you should drop the dialogue entirely,'” the director told us, speaking about the production process of his film.

Ed Catto: Planning for Geek

There’s a big year ahead in Geek Culture with lots to look forward to. Upon reflection, I feel like should have more clearly defined plans.

Cosplayers are the best at looking ahead and especially planning their convention attendance. The inherent creativity and creation of cosplay demands disciplined convention selection and scheduling. Cosplay entails developing elaborate timelines so that cosplayers have the necessary time to envision, plan, purchase materials and sew and/or assemble their cosplay costumes. And of course, so many cosplayers create multiple costumes. The finished products are impressive, and the work it takes to get there is impressive.

I’d like to attend several conventions this year and have my favorites. But in general, I find myself really looking forward to the smaller ones. That might be just because I’ve had so many great experiences at the big ones. And as a very impatient guy, I

Newswire: R.I.P. Tyrus Wong, influential Disney animator

According to The New York Times, classic Disney and Warner Bros. artist Tyrus Wong has died. Wong was the lead artist on Disney’s Bambi and a prolific creator in many other mediums, but he spent decades in obscurity due to racial biases against Asian-Americans. Wong was 106.

Born in China’s Guangdong Province in 1910, Wong left for America with his father in 1920 and was forced to leave his mother and sister behind, neither of whom he ever saw again. Getting to America didn’t make things any easier, though, as Chinese immigrants at the time were forced to undergo what the New York Times story calls a “formidable inquisition” before they could be allowed in. Wong’s father was able to get in easily because he had previously lived in the United States, but Wong himself was stuck at San Francisco’s Angel Island Immigration Station for ...

Tyrus Wong, Artist Behind Disney's Bambi, Passes Away at 106
In a year where entertainment fans have lost so many legendary artists, one more icon has passed away just before we ring in the new year. Unlike most of this year's late legends, this artist was not a household name, although his work had a major impact on some of the most revered films of all time. Artist Tyrus Wong, whose work helped shape the unique look for Bambi and many other films, passed away yesterday at the age of 106.

Deadline reports that the artist's family confirmed the news of his death on Facebook, although no further details were given. The artist was born October 25, 1910 in Taishan, Guangdong Province, China, before he emigrated to San Francisco with his father in 1919. He received a full scholarship to the Otis Art Institute, and upon graduating in 1930, he immediately started working in the Hollywood studio system as an artist. Here's an excerpt from
